Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all of you! You are such a blessing to so many, esp. me!
My dear sweet husband surprised me early with a floor stand Ott light! Now I can work on these projects at night and on cloudy days. Stitching on 28 count requires good light, as you all know and I could never seem to get enough light even with a regular lamp.
I want to take a moment to say thank you to my husband. While it is all of you who help stitch for this project, it is my husband who supports me with his love and patience.
He oohs and ahs at all the goodies that come through my mail. He watches me stitch and applauds me when I finish a project. And he bought me this light just to make me happy.
My dear husband also listens to me when I tell him about the patients we are helping. He is also there when there are losses.
This past year when we lost sweet MaKenzie, it broke his big heart. But he went with me to the family time, walked up with me to the little casket and cried with me. I honestly don't think I could have done that without him.
James, I love you so much. I need you so much and you are such a blessing to me. These past 5 years have been wonderful and I look forward to the next 5 years.
I pray each of you have all you want and need for this Christmas! I love you all!
